Lots of people are talking about employer branding these days. While I agree that all companies should be conscious of how they are viewed by employees and prospective employees, I think many branding efforts are misdirected and a plain waste of money and effort.
It’s not about how many people think you’re great. It’s who, and why.
Brains over beans
I work with young tech companies who, by their very nature, are selective in who they employ. Most really are… Continue

In just a few days we will be joining family and friends to sit around a table and appreciate the many blessings we have. But, what are your REALLY doing to share with others who don’t have as much as you? What legacy are you teaching your children about what Thanksgiving really means? What are you teaching strangers about the gift of giving and random kindness? What are you teaching yourself about not putting yourself first?
Growing up, each and every year we volunteered to… Continue

What am I thankful for? Lot’s of things including a satisfying job, great colleagues and the opportunity to surround myself with the kind of people in this community…..but my 12 year old grandson wrote about the most important things in my life. The heart of everything that inspires me to success in business.

In the spirit of the season, I thought it would be worthwhile to give some thanks (sometimes you forget about it in the midst of everything else). So, in no particular order, here are a few things that I’m particularly thankful for this year:
* You: Seriously. I appreciate the time you spend reading this blog. I hope you find it worthwhile.
* Monster: It’s very useful for our industry to have a ‘big’ company to kick around. Plus it keeps the target off everyone else.

At what point does a start-up or a small business need HR? In my experience many small businesses feel comfortable as long as their payroll company is handling payroll reporting properly. Yet, as the business grows, the need for standardization in managing people develops. Policies on vacation, sick time, harassment, dress attire and much more begin to surface.
I’ve heard clients use the term “HR Lite” to express their internal HR structure. Basically, they don’t want rules to stifle… Continue

While most of us are busy getting ready for the holidays, whether that includes traveling to visit family or making plans to entertain friends at home, we might want to make the most of the time we have now and do something a little different, like focus on ourselves. We tend to busy ourselves with plans that usually involve helping and taking care of others. In all that entails, we should remember to take the time and attention to tend to ourselves. If we don’t, we can’t always expect others… Continue

Now that all the hoopla has died down I figured I throw my hat in the President Obama, Nobel Prize, drama. First a couple of qualifiers:
1. This isn’t a political post.
2. It doesn’t matter who I voted for.
3. Unlike most people who have already discussed this subject, I’m going to keep this brief and focused on my area of expertise.
Looking at this from a career accomplishments point of view, a resume stuffer if you will, this is pure gold for… Continue

Check out this great article I have found on how important hiring the right employees from the beginning is for start-up companies. Human Resources is a great solution whether you have the person on board full-time or contract. You may or may not know this about me, but I love working with start-up organizations. We have placed many HR professionals both on contract and full time positions for many start-ups. If you need help hiring or determining who the right hire may be, let me know. I would… Continue

My friends, there is a huge ocean out there containing many species of fish, enough for everyone!
There was once a fisherman who was only interested in one type of fish. And that fish was the lobster. The reason why he was only interested in the lobster was because he loved lobsters. He knew where to find them, he knew how to catch them, and he knew many different ways to prepare delicious lobster meals. He had relationships with and belong to a network of lobster lovers; merchants… Continue
